Packers Monday night kickoff reportedly pushed back

With the Patriots-Chiefs game being moved to Monday night, the Packers game against the Falcons will kick off later than originally scheduled. 

With the Patriots-Chiefs game being rescheduled to Monday due to Covid-19 concerns, the Packers will kickoff later than originally scheduled according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Corey and I will be live a half-hour prior to kickoff on Monday night on the CHTV YouTube and Facebook pages. We'll see you there!

Well, That's one advantage for me as it still won't be too late in Arizona, as long as the game doesn't change channels! Covid is definitely starting to affect the season. Let's enjoy every game we get to watch. GPG

It’s difficult to figure how many game postponements the league can tolerate and still complete the season.
MLB has the advantages of doubleheaders and more schedule flexibility. Moving game days and shorter practice weeks can create havoc for everyone.

Hopefully the league can keep the outbreaks contained.
Thanks, Since ‘61

Current tests bias toward false positives. Odds are high that some players have COVID-19, but may not be infectious. I know it sounds strange, but the reason we haven't had mass outbreaks is the virus is really hard to get. Outside the nursing homes, mass outbreaks are all most without question traced to superspreaders. As long as teams movements are restricted, and outside interactions are limited, the odds are are pretty good that the NFL will complete the season. Not easy, but doable.

Not true that current tests show false positives - the rapid tests trend to false negatives

PCR Tests:

Note that false negative chances decrease significantly over time since infection.

It's very important to note that false positives are also a problem, but from a sports-league perspective, it's better for a player to have a false positive (which a later PCR test may confirm or refute). If the test is a false positive, the player will sit one week and then be cleared.

And, the virus has mutated and is getting EASIER, not harder to get. Fortunately, the severity of the virus has NOT increased via mutation. Superspreaders tend to be events (like weddings, funerals, family gatherings), not individual people.

I do agree that restricting movement and masking-up of players, coaches, and staff is probably the best way to finish the season.
